Re: What is your opinion? Do you Agree or Disagree?
Posted by MikeC/TX of TX on 7/13/19 5:26pm Msg #72649
I would agree - the SPLC seems to have lost its focus in recent years and is labeling everyone they don't agree with as a "hate group". The KKK, neo-nazis, white supremacists - yeah, they have a point there, those are violent groups with an agenda based on hate. But just because a group expresses an opinion opposing gay marriage or criticizes radical Islam? That's crossing a line.

Personally, I have no problem with gay marriage or with LBGTQ people. Neither has any affect on me or my life. I disagree with those that oppose them, but that's their opinion and they're entitled to it as long as they don't do so violently. I have no problem with Muslims and I appreciate those Muslims who speak out against radicalization. It doesn't make any sense to me why the SPLC would label two Muslims who are anti-radicalization as "haters". Doesn't that suggest that the SPLC is FOR radicalized Islam?

Earlier this year, Morris Dees was ousted and Richard Cohen resigned amid allegations of sexual and racial harassment, and new leadership was brought on board to review practices. Maybe that will get them back on course. I guess we'll see, but I've been taking what the SPLC says with a large grain of salt for a while now.
